The minister added that the President has recently told several ministers that he would not be intimidated by the threats of the JHU, firmly adding that it would not be an issue even if the party decides to leave the coalition government.
Meanwhile, the JHU says that the government is yet to respond to their proposal presented recently. By now, all discussions held with regard to the proposals have also ended.
But knowing President Rajapaksha who is well known for NOT keeping to his promises, can turn his tunes when it comes to Presidential election in January.
In May 2009 Rajapaksha promised 13+ amendment if he is allowed to kill the LTTE and eventually his army killed more than 40,000 Tamil Civilians with more than 1000 LTTE Leaders and their family members who surrendered with White Flag after UN negotiated the surrender. But now he is refusing to implement even the current constitution of the country in full ”because the LTTE is no more alive”.
A Muslim leader said that at the moment he requires the Muslim votes and is playing a game to show the Muslims that he is not supportive of racist activities of the Buddhists extremists, but when they were attacked by these Sinhala thugs the President did not take any positive action against the Buddhist Monks who attacked them.
BBS another Buddhist extremist organisation has already said that they will support Rajapaksha in the January election.
Another anti Tamil party run by Minister Wimal Weerawansa who wants the 13th amendment dissolved has said that his party will support Rajapaksha.
Tamils will not support him in the forthcoming election because they know that he is a liar and is a racist who’s army killed their next of skins and Tamil girls were raped by his Army and he is not taking any action against them or Not even prepared to give equal rights to the minority as promised by him in May 2009.
